Before And After School Care
The Before School Program
The Before School Program is located at Swift River Elementary School and offers before school child care for children in grades K-6. The program runs from 6:45 a.m. through 8:30 a.m. and offers relaxing recreational activities for students. They are bussed from the program to their respective public school classrooms. In the event the Belchertown Public Schools openings are delayed, the before school program will have a one-hour delay regardless of the amount of time the public schools are delayed.
The After School Program
The After School Program is located at Chestnut Hill School and provides a safe environment for students in grades K-6, after school. Daily hours are 2:45 / 3:00 p.m. through 5:30 p.m. Children are bussed from their schools to Chestnut Hill where our staff meet them. They are escorted to our program rooms where they are given time for snack, to socialize with friends, help with homework, and the opportunity to participate in enrichment and recreational activities on days when public school is in session. Childcare is available on Professional Development Days and during school vacations, whenever possible.
